The results are in. We spent six months investigating the Housing Authority of the City of Los Angeles (HACLA). We found that leaders of the billion-dollar agency responsible for providing shelter to L.A.'s most vulnerable residents spent hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars on questionable expenses.
Correspondent Laurel Erickson revealed in March the huge salary and lavish spending of HACLA's Executive Director, "Rudy" Montiel. That report contributed to his firing and the ousting of two commissioners. But we didn't stop there. Our investigative team battled HACLA for access to thousands of pages of expense reports and credit card receipts of the executive staff. Among their findings: $100,000 for employee incentives and $2,000 dinner tabs. Watch the show to see how HACLA spent your money.
Plus, we'll be posting many of the records to an interactive database. Search through the expense reports and see some of the receipts for yourself. At one lunch meeting, HACLA officials charged more than 30 slabs of filet mignon to the company credit card.
